First time safari with unsatisfy opertator
2/5

We choosed smile with us tour for our tour operator in Tanzania. We felt that Jacob was very active on the communication for planning of the tour and accommodation. On the first day he picked us up late 1 hour and said that our guide will be changed without informing us the reason. We knew later that our guide has just been contacted that morning! Since there has been a change in guide and car and also the poor operation of smile with us tour on the reservation and permit to go to each national park, we spent more than 1.30 hour at each gates (i.e. serengeti and ngorongoro). The worst is that we didn't do the game drive as we spent too much time dealing with all these problems which should not exist if the tour operator is professional enough. Our iternerary was ruined. Our guide tried to manage all problems and planned new itenerary. We felt that this tour operator is very unprofessional.

Thank you very much for your review. I explained to you the whole situation happened in both areas. Every guide in my company used to maintain his vehicle for control purposes.That day all my guides were busy with the different safaris. The guide who was supposed to go with you her wife was in hospital waiting to deliver, and she was in the critical condition, so we allowed him to take care of her wife, then his car was also packed.We decided to use another vehicle and driver from my best friend's company.We did that because we thought he was much familiar with a vehicle and will deliver a nice service to our clients. We processed all the payment for safari some days before,everything was arranged accordingly but the mistake caused with delay on changing the vehicle detail in national parks systems by national parks officers even though we normally do this successfully without any delay. We contacted all gates and they made it possible though it took some time. We understand this guide is real professional but in this situation he also thought he could manage the situation with own unfortunately he did not. I understand this has disappointed you as other customer could be. I Apologize on behalf of my company and i promise this will never happen again. Thank you for understanding.
